Diagonal Lace Scarf & Wrap Pattern

Diagonal Lace Scarf & Wrap Pattern

“The perfect accessory for the 'shoulder' season.”

Our lace teacher, Becky ffitch, designed this easy-to-knit, elegant scarf in a fine alpaca blend for lightweight coziness indoors or out. Karen Alfke reworked it in rustic European linen as a wrap for cool evenings in sunny places. Or wrap it twice as a lavish scarf. Whichever way you go, it's the perfect accessory for the 'shoulder' season.

We can't say it enough—as with any lace project, the beauty is in the blocking! If you're curious halfway through your project, you can do what Carol did with our Isager Alpaca Merino 2 sample. She was really enjoying the soft drapey nature of the yarn in her hands, and couldn't wait to see the lace pattern blocked open over a full-width piece, so upon finishing her second skein, she put her live stitches on a piece of waste yarn and blocked it early! A little bit of the "Ahh!" factor to carry you through the rest of the project. Re-block the whole thing when you finish for a gorgeous result.
